Designated Hitter – Prince Fielder (2005-Present) (VOTER’S CHOICE)
Prince is the man with the bat in Milwaukee for the last five years, and it was almost no question he would end up here when the voting closed. He’s your guy at DH, so he doesn’t need a lot of arguing on our parts, but here’s Lou’s take:
After looking at our all Brewers squad, we have a lot of good guys, but we are missing that powerhouse slugger. So my vote for all Brewers DH goes to Prince Fielder. Let’s face it, if we were an AL team, you can bet your sweet arse that we would be working twice as hard to keep Prince. In 6 seasons he has 192 HR’s and 536 RBI’s. His value as a DH will grow as he gets older, but having his bat in this line-up would make this team a real force to be reckoned with.
There’s your starting lineup for the All-Brewers Squad, and I must say it looks impressive. Thanks to Lou for all the help and some good debates, thank you to the readers who voted, and thanks to baseball-reference.com for the stat assists. Did we get it right? Let us know how you think things stacked up in the comments section. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to try and stretch my fingers out before we get the All-Brewers Pitchers and Utility team up this weekend.
